Funny to think how the scales even out for Joe Zawinul. On the one hand, "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy", and "In A Silent Way" and "Bitches Brew". I'll even give you "Birdland". On the other hand,Weather Report. Is it possible to measure what a loss it was that Wayne Shorter spent so much of his career in a band that sounded so rinky-dink? Zawinul has to take the rap for a lot of fusion, and a lot of electric piano. "Asked last year how he found his young sidemen, he answered: 'They find me, man. All these kids in my band, they knew me from since they were young. Like I grew up with Ellington and Count Basie, they grew up with Weather Report.'" Exactly.
